My Hair Regimen and Staples

My Hair Regimen and Staples | Jan 2012

With every new year comes plenty of change and new goals... well my regime hasn't changed much but my staples sure have! 
I was way to laxed last year and forgot to update y'all! So here's my updated Regime.

Wash once every week or once every two weeks
 [alternating between Shampoo and Conditioner]
Moisturise and seal every day/night
Trim ends every 3- 4 months or when necessary

The Wash...
Prepoo* | I prepoo every wash day which softens and prepares my hair for washing, whilst also protecting
 it from being stripped of its natural goodness.

Wash/Clarify | I wash / co-wash my hair once every 1 or 2 weeks.
 I alternate between shampoo washing and co-washing , and only clarify when I feel I have 
a lot of product build up, usually once every two months.

ConditionI DC with heat for 20-30 minutes. This can be under a few carrier bags! Or under my trusty hooded 
dryer and shower cap! I use a moisturising DC most wash days and a protein DC when my hair feels weak
 and/or when I will be using a reasonable amount of direct heat. 

Treatments | The two products I use on my weekly/fortnightly wash are Porosity Control for reducing porous hair
 and Aphogee 2 minute Reconstructor for a quick protein boost.

Upkeep and styling...
Leave-in | After washing I follow up with a Leave -in and then proceed to styling my hair. 
I dry by blowdrying, airdrying [scarf method]
 or rollersetting my hair.

Moisturiser/ Sealant | I moisturise and seal every day/night. I also baggy my hair once a week.

Heat | Before applying heat to my hair I always use a Heat Protectant

Scalp Stimulation | I massage my scalp every night and every 2-3 days I massage it using a  stimulating scalp oil.
